I zipped over to Pressed Saturday night to check out some more metal. Among the most glaring omissions of local bands from the blog, I'd say grindcore devotees Fuck The Facts are near the top of the list. I still haven't seen them, but I figure it might count the same if I manage to catch the various members other projects ... no? Well, it was worth a shot. At any rate, FTF's Topon Das kicked things off in a decidedly non-grinding mode with some pedal manipulation, and Black Oak Decline and The Great Sabatini completed the ear-drum-pummelling evening.
"Now go home and play with your delay pedals."
Up next, Black Oak Decline. The name automatically makes me think southern rock, but don't expect any washboards from this crew, which was first put together by frontman Mike Raymond; I also know drummer Tony from manning the door at Zaphod's. Here's Mike, starting things off with some serious feedback.
The whole loud lot!
Unfortunately their bass amp died after four songs or so ...on to The Great Sabatini after the jump!
I saw The Great Sabatini play at Mavericks back in September 2010 with Black Faxes, Vilipend and Alaskan and they were mighty loud ... they haven't gotten any quieter! Here's some hair-shaking action with singer Sean!
And the rest of the combo: Rob, Joey and Steve!
Steve's also popped up on the blog with Greber and Biipiigwan.
The whole lot!
And some final Sean.
Great show; unfortunately some extremely treacherous sidewalks kept the crowd to a moderate size.
